Poll shows GOP gaining on Dems

A new Wall Street Journal/NBC poll shows the GOP gaining on Democrats heading into the midterm elections. Political Science professor Graham Wilson, author of  “Only in America? American Politics in Comparative Perspective,” offers his view.

” Obama is the victim of two totally unrealistic expectations, one of which he encouraged himself. One is that the U.S. economy could recover in 18 months from the economic disaster he inherited from Bush. The other unrealistic expectation Obama himself created was that simply because he had been elected, our political system would work differently.”
